Aminya and James Scott facilities are located in the heart of the rural North East of Tasmania and boast magnificent panoramic rural views of rolling hills and Mount Stronach.

The town of Scottsdale is home to many facilities, including a comprehensive medical centre, a hospital, pharmacy, major banks, and many other services and facilities.
Aminya is a homely 32 bed facility. ' Aminya' is an aboriginal term for 'peaceful place'. Throughout the home there are cosy sitting areas to enjoy a quiet moment in the sun taking in the lush pastures or to entertain visitors. We offer single rooms, all with private ensuites, and can provide all levels of care.
Aminya offers 2 funded respite rooms and guests are able to utilise all facilities during their stay.
All rooms have electric high/low beds and appropriate furniture and storage areas - leaving plenty of opportunity for personalising the space with favourite items of furniture such as an armchair or bookcase. The bedrooms and bathrooms have emergency call bells monitored and there is Registered Nurse on 24 hours a day. The rooms are located a short distance to the dining room.
Our catering staff provide home cooked meals to meet with dietary requirements and the tastes of all care recipients. Individualised and cultural specific diets are easily accommodated.
Our care recipients are able to participate in group activities and individualised programs, which are developed to cater for individual preferences.
Aminya is more than Aged Care Facility, its a home, that harnesses the North East country living.
* May Shaw is an inclusive organisation that welcomes clients and staff from culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD), Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ASTI), and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, and Queer (LGBTIQ) communities.
